College Football 2012 Odds – Alabama vs LSU Picks
2012-11-16

Alabama and LSU will have another shot at each other this Saturday when they meet at Tiger Stadium at 8 PM ET.

Both teams combined for 15 wins and one loss this season, but unlike last year, they are not the clear favorites to be elected to the BCS Championship game.

Bama smashed the Tigers for the national championship last year, and they want some revenge.

“There are a lot of scars from that national championship game,” LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan said. “You will see it on the field. The loss in the national championship game had a big impact on us. Going into last season, we had set goals like winning the national championship. Bama took that from us. They took that national championship ring. We want to show the world that we have bounced back from that loss”.

“LSU is the SEC championship team or whatever, and not us, we’re just the national championship team,” Alabama wide receiver Kevin Norwood said on Monday. “And that’s one of our goals, to be the SEC championship team.”

“To me, I like to fulfill all my goals, and that’s one we didn’t, so it’s motivation for us.”

Coach Nick Saban is use to see his team performs under pressure. He expects greatness this Saturday.

“When you play in games like this, everybody would say it’s really critical you play your best in a game like this,” Saban said. “But the formula and the recipe for what that is doesn’t really change. Even though you’d like to change it, and put a little more sugar in the cake to make it taste better, it usually makes it taste worse.

Alabama is favorite by 9.5 points despite the game being in Louisiana.
